Quit renting your church home

May 17, 2015 — Leave a comment

Church membership is critical for spiritual growth and yet so many people opt to “rent” church rather than joining:

Those who merely attend or refuse to commit themselves completely to a church are essentially renting the church. But this is not the picture we see in Scripture.

Acts 2:42 says the early Christiansdevotedthemselves to the gathering, teaching, prayer and other facets of what makes a church. There is a level of devotion to the local church.

In numerous letters to churches, Paul doesn’t just say the church islikea body. He says the churchisthe body and the people who make it up are members of the whole. That sounds like more than “renting.”

No where in Scripture do you see faithful Christians simply attending church services haphazardly. Sincere followers of Christ are serious members of a local body.
